Course Summary

This degree at Cardiff Met is professionally accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), offering you the opportunity to study an industry-approved psychology course that is highly regarded by employers. BPS accreditation means you can gain Graduate and/or Chartered Membership of the Society upon graduation - enhancing your CV, maximizing your career prospects and providing you with a platform to progress to specialist postgraduate Psychology courses. In your first and second years, you will be given an introduction to the areas of Social and Developmental Psychology, as well as research methods and data analysis. In the third year you have the opportunity to specialize in the area of psychology that interests you. Specialist areas can include Clinical Psychology, Occupational Psychology, Health Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Social Psychology, Exercise Psychology and more. You will have the opportunity to undertake work placements and volunteering in a wide range of settings to maximize your practical experience.

Past placements have included working with vulnerable young adults at Safer Wales; working with children in secondary schools in a mentoring capacity; in forensic, clinical and health settings, shadowing professionals in areas such as the probation service and hospitals. ​The programme takes employment and skills development very seriously, and prepares students for a competitive professional world. Many careers for psychology graduates require experience in the field before starting postgraduate training. We support students in gaining as much experience as they can during their studies with us, but unfortunately not all work that is undertaken is recorded when the national statistics on graduate employment are collated due to this being collated six months after graduation.
